Recently I watched a Youtube video from one of my FAVORITE YouTubers Vicky Logan. She was going over her favorite products for the month of October, and one of the products she talked about was Lola. Lola is a feminine product subscription service that delivers organic tampons. Ok I know, you’re probably like what is an organic tampon??? Well… organic tampons are tampons that have not been treated with any chemicals like bleach. They are made up of pure products that will not harm our bodies. At first I thought… “Hmmm this sounds like a ploy to get people to buy things they don’t need”. But, after doing my research I realized bleach cotton does not sound very safe AT ALL!!!
I went to www.organiccotton.organd I was astonished at what I saw. Bleached cotton can contain many chemicals that could be extremely dangerous. Just take a look below:
Bleached cotton products have been known to contain:
- · Heavy metals
- · Formaldehyde
- · Azo dyes
- · Benzidine
- · Chlorine bleach
If we wouldn’t want to consume these chemicals, why on earth would a woman want to insert these chemicals into her private areas? After further research I found out even more disturbing information.
Using bleached cotton is suspected to cause:
- · Cancer
- · Eczema
It also would not surprise me if there were more side effects that could be caused from using bleached cotton.
As you all know from my Instagram page and here, I have begun to develop a more organic lifestyle when it comes to the products I use in my home and the foods I consume. Slowly I have started to transition from using chemicals and genetically modified items to using more natural products that have ingredients I know how to pronounce. This includes, feminine products, toilet paper, laundry detergent and skin care products.
The Lola brand offers safe organic feminine products for only $9 a month. They even have deal right now where you can get your first two boxes shipped together for only $9 and shipping is always free.
For me the subscription service alone is perfect for someone like me. I’m always super busy and I always seem to have to stop to get my products at the most inconvenient times. Knowing that they will be in my mailbox right when I need them is perfect, and the fact that they are organic is an added bonus! Think of it like Netflix for feminine care. In fact I ditched my Netflix subscription just so that I could fit Lola into my budget. Its more of a necessity for me than unlimited movies anyway!
I haven’t had a chance to try Lola yet, my first two boxes just arrived yesterday. However, as soon as I try them out I will give a full review on what I think!
Until next time lovies!!!
